My Intex 603M will only run for 5 min or less before it trips it own circuit breaker.?


That unit has a GFCI breaker installed. Those are made to prevent electrocution. IF there is ANY water leakage from the pump into the area that supplies voltage, the breaker will trip. Make sure that there are no damp areas inside the unit and make sure that you have all the wires that it connects to wired correctly and have ground connections.

Intertherm FEH-015HA. Why does it keep opening breaker?


Avery, if the breaker is properly sized, there is something in the circuit that is causing higher than normal resistance such as possibly loose connections on one end or the other. Check the 'minimum circuit ampacity' (for circuit A and possibly circuit B) on the heater tag and make sure the correct size breaker has been installed. That should be a 15 kw furnace and could either be a dual circuit or a single circuit heat strip. Fifteen kw correlates to approximately 60 amps at 240 volts.

TURN OFF THE POWER and check the connections inside the furnace terminal block for discoloration and tightness. If its a dual circuit, there will be two breakers to turn off. Check to see if it is a dual circuit and if so, see if someone has paralleled those two circuits together inside the furnace. If so, you have to make sure the appropriate single circuit wire and single breaker has been installed.

It is usually recommended to run the separate circuits to the furnace instead of paralleling them together.

Good luck and whatever you do...BE SAFE ABOUT IT .

I have a intex model 603 filter pump that keeps tripping the reset on the plug... it seems that when i first hit reset it will work for a few mins but then trip.. i can hit reset again and it will work...


Have you tried running an extra duty extension cord to another plug, not in that circuit?? Your GFCI may be bad?? Pump drawing too many amps and the breaker not rated for those amps.. Bad pump??

I would try another plug first and work from there...

Pool motor kicking the breaker only after a few minutes .


If the pool pump is running and then 10 minutes into the cycle it trips the breaker, then it is overloading the circuit. The pump is laboring, workingf too hard . The filter shoiuld be cleaned. maybe there is a blockage in the return line to the pool. the other thing could be the wire size to the pump, but you said that it was running last summer . so that should be OK

My neptune electric dryer keep blowing the breaker after ten min


If the dryer is running then blows the breaker , then it is not in the electric circuit, There is a fault in the dryer itself. If it blows the circuit at the same place in the cycle each time then there could be some fault in the heating coil or in the timer circuitry.

Heater runs 5-10 minutes then blows the breaker


After raising the water level in the pool I had no results. I bypassed the pressure switch and nothing happened so it was not the switch. Then I turned on the current for a few minutes, this moved something as it works now. So I conclude that the problem came from letting my water level get a little low.
